They plan on using local foods - great news for city girl banker-turned orchard owner Meg Corey. Yet when one of the chefs is found dead, face-down in a farmer's pig wallow, plans come to a screeching halt. And Meg soon discovers they may have a locally grown killer on their hands.

    Now that Meg Corey's apples have been harvested and sold, she's enjoying some free time. But when the small but annoying mishaps plaguing her start turning sinister, Meg begins to worry that her first harvest may be her last.

    Bitter Intent

    I have listened to the book a second time because any book reveals things missed on the first listen.

    Apple orchard owner Meg Corey is finally feeling settled into her new life in Granford - she's made friends, and her relationship with Seth Chapin is heating up - when her old Boston coworker Lauren Converse comes barreling into town, running the Congressional campaign for a former hometown football hero. But Meg doesn't have time to worry about why Seth seems reluctant to back Lauren's campaign when her neighbor, local dairy farmer Joyce Truesdell, is found dead from an apparent kick to the head from one of her cows.

    Who Killed My Cow

    Can't say as I don't do print versions. The audio version is bound to be better in 99% of the books. With the right narrator of course.

    While orchard owner Meg Corey dreads the labor of manual irrigation to stave off a drought, her boyfriend, Seth, couldn't be more excited about doing historic renovation on one of Granford's oldest houses. Tagging along as he picks up supplies is supposed to give Meg a much-needed break, but the trip turns rotten when she almost trips over a dead body at an old sawmill's forest reserve. But the body isn't the only frightening discovery she makes.

    It's harvest time in Granford, Massachusetts, and orchard owner Meg Corey and her fiancé, Seth, are both racing to beat the New England winter. Meg is bringing in her apple crop with a team of workers while Seth is working to restore an old building in the center of town. But when his project is set back due to the unexpected discovery of a skeleton under the building - and, even worse, a young man related to one of Meg's former apple pickers is found dead behind the local feed store - the couple's carefully laid plans are quickly spoiled....

    Another great book!

    I have the entire series and all other books by the same author. I highly recommend her books to anyone.

    The fall harvest may be just about over, but orchard owner Meg Corey is busier than ever planning her wedding to Seth Chapin. Who knew picking apples would be less work than picking out rings and a dress? And even though the happy couple has invited most of Granford, Massachusetts, to the ceremony, they might have to make room for one more guest....

    The series is grinding along, disappointingly
